Born in the mountainous Epirus region of Greece, Nikos Pantazis is a contemporary painter who now lives and works in Athens. Nikos’ work draws upon Impressionism, using broad brushstrokes and unblended colours to create a sense of movement within his oil paintings. This modern take on impressionistic painting has lead Nikos on a journey to capture ephemeral subjects, and each work captures the unique beauty of a location in a specific moment. Nikos is a master of light, allowing him to depict the ever-changing scenes of nature that vary with the seasons and weather.
